Reflection in Blue1887 by Eva Bonnier
Eva Bonnier’s depictions of terminal illness give a pared-down everyday perspective, with the artist challenging the stereotypical female bourgeois ideal of the time. Women are presented as “subjects” with strong integrity and not as fragile objects. In Reflection in Blue, the figures are painted from a realistic perspective, placing us in the same room as the ailing person.
